All the furniture has been in the same place for several years, so it was time to give the porch a fresh new look for spring.
I've always had the side board up against the wall and with the brick column in front of it, you really couldn't see it very well as you approached the front door. I wanted to make it a focal point so we turned it around......
By turning the side board around, it created a "wall" and made the porch entry feel so much more cozy & welcoming!
I've always wished there was a porch light next to the front door, so I put a vintage pole lamp there to welcome everyone to our home.
I put a big mirror on the back of the side board to reflect all the new lighting.....then added a small standing mirror that I bought at a yard sale over the weekend.
Yard sale finds are such a budget friendly way to decorate a home don't you think? I added another birdhouse to my ever growing collection....lol!
See how the brick column hid my side board.....
I can't wait to show you guys how I'm going to decorate the other side of my "wall"
I've had a big mirror on this wall for several years and always felt it looked really plain. I can't really put any decor under the mirror or the front door will hit it when we come in or out.
I created a floral design for the porch using a metal Welcome Shovel and lots of pretty pink flowers.
Now for some more budget friendly decorating. The porch entry opening is pretty wide and I've always felt the corbels were a little small.
I found these bigger corbels at Hobby Lobby for 75% off.
I love how the new corbels have a touch of black and also a little wood on them.
The sun is starting to set and it's time for H & I to relax on the porch with a glass of wine.
Have a wonderful evening....hugs
